La Gomera takes Silbo across the island
La Gomera is keeping its traditions alive by taking workshops to learn the whistling techniques of Silbo and folklore around the island.
They begin on October 15th and continue in the six municipalities until next June.
Cabildo president, Casimiro Curbelo said this commitment to training has enabled more than 300 people to learn about Silbo Gomero and Folklore classes during the last two years.
On this occasion, more than 200 people have already registered to start their training.
“The interest in safeguarding these values has been increasing, guaranteeing their generational passage and, therefore, their survival,” he said.
This year the registration procedures have been made from the website lagomera.es.
